Acting students will receive instruction customized for their individual needs and skill level, drawing on a variety of techniques, including Linklater (physical and vocal work), Stanislavski, Meisner, and Grotowski, Shurtleff, among others. Students can work privately on audition skills, including monologues and cold reading, as well as scene work, character building and basic principles of acting.

I've been teaching private vocal instruction since 2003, and opened my own studio in 2008. I love helping people find their true, authentic voice, which I feel is essential not only for singers but many other people as well! Singing is a great joy, and the voice is one of our primary modes of expre

Dance culture has a tendency to be exclusive. But why? Everyone can dance, and everyone can learn to dance - we just need to know how our bodies are meant to move and what they are capable of doing! Dance is an art form whose pedagogy is passed down from teacher to teacher. As studies of biomechanics and kinesiology evolve, so should the approach to teaching dance. We know that not every “body” looks, moves or is built the same. With new developments in science, we can now teach dance with a more biomechanically safe method that allows the art form to be more accessible to all bodies. Not only will this allow accessibility to all dancers but also provides longevity to dancers.

I offer lessons that are designed to be achievable by any and every body - from non-dancers, to advanced dancers. The lessons are taught through a biomechanical approach that allows for accommodations and safe execution for all bodies and structural limitations while still staying true to the aesthetic of the ...

I have been developing, mentoring and representing talent for over half of the last decade. As an agent, I've worked with music artists, actors and models both independently and for agencies. The techniques and methods I use are designed to help you not only overcome obstacles but avoid them. I set honest expectations free of sugar coating using real world examples while keeping every lesson fun and informative. I give you every tool you'll need for success. Overall, my lessons can be applied to all aspects of life whether it's office work to acting to building self confidence. Through the years I've taught plenty of students who just wanted to come out of their shell or feel more comfortable in social settings. I look forward to having you in my class, where you'll laugh and learn.

It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.
Kristyl N.
I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

"Scott Mulligan is the best acting coach I could hope for. He took a very special interest in me and my talent. And he put his own reputation on the line in order to recommend me to a talent agency, and I got it! I am now working as a professional actor and I couldn’t have done it without Scott Mulligan."

"Recently I worked on a callback with Jake. Being an actor himself he knows exactly how to talk to performers in a way that empowers them. In his mock audition settings he successfully creates the feeling of professionalism that you encounter in the world and enables you to find confidence in your process and work within that setting. Most importantly, Jake is encourages you to be yourself and bring you to the audition, not give the people behind the table an idea of what you think they want. Jake understands that auditioning is not about delivering what you think it should be, but taking the opportunity to express your unique self within the character and circumstances."

"My experience with Anthony has helped me to push myself to limits that I could have never imagined, He has given me monologues that i would never have had the courage to even attempt. From our first meeting he fully immersed himself into getting to know me as a person finding out my strength and weakness as an artiste.
He has shown me how very important it is to have technical training, that it can only enhance the natural talents that I have. He is caring, stern in the fact that he makes you work the full time you are with him. He is an incredible support system a great encourager, I'm looking forward to what the future holds for my acting career now!!"

"Julia was my college audition coach to get into acting school, and I am confident that she is the reason I got into the schools I did. I met with her on Skype once a week for about a year/year and half. She coached me on all of my monologues and even gave me acting coaching on songs. She helped me find almost all of my monologues, and was particularly helpful in coaching me on scansion and Shakespeare! Not only did she do all of this, but going through the college audition process herself and being trained at Juilliard, she prepared me for what to expect before I went in to my first audition. She is an absolutely wonderful teacher and would highly recommend her to anyone going through this experience. I am now a Sophomore Acting Major at Syracuse University which was ranked the number 8 acting school in the world this year. I also got into drama schools in Europe. Thank you Julia!! <3"
